The fastest watch in the world
In 2010, six years after the release of the Bugatti Type 370, which marked the beginning of its partnership with Bugatti, Parmigiani Fleurier unveiled a new watchmaking feat that once again defied established conventions. The Bugatti Super Sport, designed to evoke its namesake, was launched on the wrist of a Bugatti driver, who crossed the finishing line with a top speed of 431 km/h. In a split second, the Bugatti Super Sport became the fastest watch in the world.
Hand-wound & power reserve movement
The PF372 movement was designed as a cascade, on two planes, to mimic the curved lines of the Bugatti Super Sport. On the wrist, the movement of the watch is presented at a 30° angle. On the topside, the balance and escape wheel bridges form an arc reminiscent of the Bugatti oval. The balance features screws created by atokalpa – Parmigiani Fleurier's bar-turning facility – and is entirely visible, as is the circular bridge of the power reserve, calibrated to 10 days and placed in the centre. This hand-wound movement has a power reserve of 10 days and is water-resistant to 10 metres.
